This is probably on of the prettiest printers on the market. In fact, if you go to the Cubify website you will see images of this printer on a kitchen counter next to the spatulas and wisps which give it a futuristic air. Of any 3d printing company its theses guys that are trying to turn the 3d printer into a everyday consumer product. They have all kinds of knick knacks on their website you can print. These categories range from fashion to Decor. They even have a “Mancave” where you can print manly accessories. These assortments are continuing to grow, and make this printer appealing to the user that doesn’t have a lot of experience creating their own designs.
The Cube 2 printer is the baby in the family of Cubify printers. It has a 5.5 inch cubed print volume and a solid 200 micron print resolution. It comes in about average for its other components. Nothing too fancy. This printer tries hard to be as straight forward as possible, but it doing so, the engineers may have left out some important components. A couple features it is missing that other printers in this price range are the heated print bed, multiple print quality options, and a glueless print bed. It these features aren’t important to you give this one a try.
I’ve mentioned in other posts my opinion on proprietary filaments. If you buy the Cube 2, or any of the Cubify printers, you will be stuck refilling with there special print cartages. I understand why a company might do this, but I don’t believe proprietary filaments belong in the 3d printer space especially as we are starting to see the rise of filament recycling system for failed prints. This may be a feature you like. There is a certain level of convinces these cartages come with, but that is up to you to decide.
